08: Europäische Strategien für internationale Forschungskooperationen

-
Alpbacher Hauptschule
Breakout / Working Group
in englischer Sprache

Der internationale Wettbewerb in Wissenschaft und Forschung stellt private und öffentliche Akteure vor enorme Herausforderungen, die immer wieder neuer Strategien und Vorgangsweisen bedürfen. Internationale Kooperation und die Bündelung von Einzelaktivitäten sind die wichtigsten Instrumente, um die Herausforderungen der Globalisierung zu bewältigen, denen einzelne Länder allein nicht gewachsen sind. Andererseits sind internationale Kooperationen in Wissenschaft und Forschung oft das Ergebnis außenpolitischer Zusammenarbeit und nationaler Prioritätensetzungen.
Diese Dynamik der Veränderungen, wie z.B. die jüngsten Entwicklungen auf dem Universitätssektor, erfordert die ständige Anpassung strategischer Instrumente und Finanzierungssysteme, um die Bedingungen für innovative Forschung zu optimieren. Darüber soll in diesem Arbeitskreis diskutiert werden.
